Kashmir: Hardening the stand after the recent terror attack on Amarnath pilgrims, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti said that we have sent a message to the entire world that Kashmiriyat is alive and that the people will not tolerate anything that is against Kashmiriyat.
Hoping that the uncertainty and violence would soon stop, Mehbooba went on to say: “It was satisfying that the people of the state, cutting across ideological divides, were unequivocal in condemning the dastardly act of violence against the Amarnath Yatris. We have sent a message to the entire world that Kashmiriyat is alive. And people will not tolerate anything that is against the ethos of Kashmiriyat.”
She further went on to say: “The best way to remember the sacrifices of these martyrs is that the people of the state work together in strengthening the democratic, secular and tolerant system set up after struggles by our forefathers.”
“Forces that are holding the Valley hostage and spreading fear need to be confronted head on to realise the dream of a khushhaal Jammu and Kashmir,” said J&K Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti.
